The error message "Spark GC Overhead limit exceeded" means that the garbage collection process in Spark has exceeded the maximum amount of time allocated for it. This happens when Spark spends too much time on garbage collection and not enough on actual processing, leading to a significant slowdown in performance. This error can be caused by a variety of factors, such as insufficient memory allocation, inefficient algorithms, or large datasets.
